The master cook who laboured in the noble kitchens of the fourteenth and fifteenth centuries was a culinary savant. Trained by apprenticeship under other masters, he had acquired a wide range of culinary skills that let him use the standard facilities — the open fire, the mortar and the bolting cloth — to the best advantage. As a master himself his craft required that he possess a very large repertoire of preparations ; he had as well to know how to accommodate the seasonal scarcity of certain foods and the lean-day strictures of the Church. Furthermore, he had to understand thoroughly the inherent qualities of all the foodstuffs he handled, a body of knowledge which had evolved in the western world through centuries of learned medical dogma. The lore and logic of the medieval kitchen is very fully explored by Terence Scully in this book. He confirms current scholarly suspicion that the science of cookery was far more advanced than has previously been thought to be the case, and he shows in his study of the marriage of method with materials that food in the middle ages was then, as now, generally something to look forward to.
